CHARLESTON - Mined Minds Foundation, the mission of which is to create tech hubs in West Virginia, is offering free software development training to help local residents transition into a career in code.

Alumni of the training work in tech across the region, including at PNC, 84 Lumber, the WV Supreme Court, and as software development consultants at Mined Minds.

Supported by the Appalachian Regional Commission, the Kanawha County Commissioners, and the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation, Mined Minds Foundation is able to offer the intense 32-week software development training for free. The training is full-time, but with the flexibility to enable trainees to continue a job on a part-time basis if they require. New classes are starting in both Clendenin and Logan on Sept. 18.

Led by industry experts recognized in the international tech community, participants can expect to learn the fundamentals of software development together with industry best practices.
